I just want to chime in with DJ here - as an Internet Radio Show,
we're treated as second-rate (at best) by a lot of places (don't even
get me started on how lousy the NYCC treated us this year). Renee has
treated us not just as human beings but as actual guests of the show
and always got back to us on any questions and was an absolute
pleasure to deal with. Pittsburgh has been top-notch to us and we have
nothing but love for everyone involved. Can't wait to see everyone!
